The space which once housed Albert's Jewelry in Southlake Mall will become a public arts space created by the IU Northwest School of Art.

Today: Indiana University Northwest School of Arts programming & engagement director Lauren Pacheco is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about about the public arts space being proposed in a former jewelers’ store space in Southlake Mall in Hobart. The planned opening date for the space is April 4th. IUN's Arts + Action Community Lab has been taking exhibits, photo booths, musical instruments and other displays on tour to places around the Region — but now wants a more permanent space. Just like all of us, the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana is dealing with inflation affecting the cost of food and the supply-chain issues these days. Executive director Victor Garcia has the latest information about the impact that inflation's having on the Food Bank's mission.
